    Not sure is not true, you hear your friends say?

    I think it looks cool, I like it!
    I got a laugh from the use of a porch light for the headlight. It's a good idea!
     
  4. I dont know anything about the math or physics but I JUST change from a roller drive to chain drive today and kept the same HOnda GX35. The chain drive runs much quieter and has better acceleration and climbs much better while keeping a similar top speed. Just by looking at it run I would guess there is much less friction loss involved in chain drive......guess that's why a friction drive is called friction drive:)

    Gearnut,
    It's not really my bike; I found it on craigslist, seattle, yours for $250.
